Be careful what you wish for-  Meg Zabrinski wants a child. She's a successful scientist, a well-known environmental advocate, and a tenured professor. She doesn't need a man in her life to make this happen. But having a baby alone is a weighty decision, so she retreats to her isolated mountain cabin to write and think. When Henry Firestone--an old foe from her distant past--drops out of the sky on Christmas Eve with three young children and a baby, Meg tells herself she'd be crazy not to consider all her options--especially when she's always nursed a secret crush on the handsome rancher. Although the sparks between them ignite a mutual passion, Henry makes it clear he's done having children. Falling in love with Henry Firestone and his beautiful family would require Meg to give up her dream. Can the Lone Wolf assimilate into a new pack, or was this Big Sky Maverick meant to be alone?  They say timing is everything-  Henry Firestone doesn't recognize the "angel in snowshoes" who comes to his rescue in the middle of a blizzard, immediately, but Meg Z. knows him. Twenty years earlier, the media paired them as rivals to the death. Meg championed the reintroduction of wolves to Yellowstone, while Henry argued just as passionately that wolves would put ranchers on the Endangered Species List.

Unfortunately, he's fighting for sole custody of his late daughter's four children. They are his biggest priority. He'd do anything to keep his family together--even sleep with the enemy in hopes that she might join his cause.  The Big Sky Mavericks series Book 1: Montana Cowgirl Book 2: Montana Cowboy  Book 3: Montana Darling Book 4: Montana Maverick Book 5: Her Forever Gift - Free!

It's the kind of situation most people would dread. Starting at a new high school, in the middle of my senior year, in a new town, in a new state. I know no one. No one knows me. That's what I'm counting on. A year ago, Aurora "Rory" Pine was just a normal teenage girl - just as sweet and naive as the fairy tale princess she was named after. But this isn't a year ago. Rory is broken, and now suffering from a debilitating anxiety disorder, wrought with precarious triggers, she moves across the country to escape the source of her troubles. Her plan is anonymity, but that's easier said than achieved for the new girl having a panic episode outside of calculus. The worst part? There's a witness - and a gorgeous one at that. Sam is a walking trigger for Rory. Incredibly handsome, built like the star athlete he obviously is, and undoubtedly popular, Sam outwardly represents everything Rory despises about high school. But as the fates keep throwing them together, a connection sparks that neither ever expected, and certainly couldn't ignore. But Sam has issues too, and Rory's past won't just stay in the damned past. When friendship evolves into something deeper, can a girl utterly destroyed by the worst kind of betrayal and a boy battling demons of his own ever have a normal relationship? Is that even what they want? Find out in NORMAL, a gritty story of trust and abuse, heartbreak and salvation, and if they're lucky - love. This is not a flowery romance - not for the faint of heart. *This book is the original work of this author, and was not contributed to, or endorsed by, any other authors.

The world has changed from what it once was. A dark new species rules the planet. Humankind is endangered. I spent all of my seventeen years deep in the forest in a hidden village with other humans, safe from the savage creatures that inherited Urth. But one day, all of that changed. Our village was found. We were discovered. My people were slaughtered. None were spared, except the young. Taken and forced into a life of slavery, we’ve been thrust into a civilization where one rule applies: kill or be killed. It is the only way to survive. As a result, I worry I’m lost, that I’ve strayed so far from what characterizes me as human I wonder some days whether I am any better than the creatures who enslave me. Then the love I feel for my siblings reminds me. The constant fear for their safety that drums in time with my heartbeat. The realization that I hate what has been done to them, to me. I vow to avenge what’s happened, to free us. Or die trying. I am Lucas. This is what life is for humans on the remains of planet Urth.

Kicking her way out of the sheet, Britt got to her feet and clutched her head instantly. It pounded like an unsuccessful road construction project and her teeth hurt, actually ached from the hangover. Stumbling to the bathroom with annoyance, she drank water and took a shower and drank more water, chastising herself for letting it get this bad.  She knew to drink water and take aspirin before bed to help curb this hideous feeling. She needed a full breakfast, something big. But she was stuck with this guy who thought it was socially acceptable to hang out after a one-night stand. Britt didn’t have any experience with a one-nighter except that time in college with the one guy in her women’s studies class, the one with the tattoo of a hard drive motherboard on his chest. That hadn’t ended well but for sure he had at least had the courtesy to leave her dorm immediately afterward. Were they supposed to have breakfast together? Bond in some way? She had work. He had…probably the unemployment line or guitar practice or something. Mainly, she needed head-space to get ready for her day and try to forget what she’d done the night before, namely some guitarist whose last name was a mystery better left unsolved. The guy was HOT! But she knew she would never see him again.  Or would she?  SERIES: The Boss's Son - Part 1 The Boss's Son - Part 2 The Boss's Son - Part 3 Spinoff - Marj's Story (Britt's best friend) Accidentally Married To The Billionaire - Part 1 Accidentally Married To The Billionaire - Part 2 Accidentally Married To The Billionaire - Part 3 Spinoff - Charlie (Jack's brother) Swept Away: Charlie's Story Breathless: Charlie's Story Safe in His Arms: Charlie's Story

A serial killer is out there, his frequency increasing, and they know there is only one agent who can crack this case: Special Agent Riley Paige. Riley is on paid leave herself, recovering from her encounter with her last serial killer, and as fragile as she is, the FBI is reluctant to tap her brilliant mind. Yet Riley, needing to battle her own demons, comes on board, and her hunt leads her through the disturbing subculture of doll collectors, into the homes of broken families, and into the darkest canals of the killer’s mind. As Riley peels back the layers, she realizes she is up against a killer more twisted than she could have imagined, and in a frantic race against time, Riley is pushed to her limit, her job on the line, her own family in danger, and her fragile psyche collapsing. Yet once Riley Paige takes on a case, she will not quit. It obsesses her, leading her to the darkest corners of her own mind, blurring the lines between hunter and hunted. After a series of unexpected twists, her instincts lead her to a shocking climax that even Riley could not have imagined. A dark psychological thriller with heart-pounding suspense, ONCE GONE marks the debut of a riveting new series—and a beloved new character—that will leave you turning pages late into the night. Book #2 in the Riley Paige series is also now available!

How can we free ourselves from mental suffering? How can we unlock what the poet William Blake referred to as “the mind-forged manacles” - those unhelpful, unfounded and inflexible habits of thought which keep us from reaching our true creative potential? This book provides practical advice on how to achieve this. But it also offers an imaginative holistic theoretical framework for an understanding of the nature of the universe, the psychological history of the human race and the meaning of life. What Readers Have Said About "How to Be Free" : "I just wanted to thank you for publishing 'How to Be Free'. It helped me through many hard times that have recently occurred.

It made me think, self reflect and take a deeper look at my own self." "I found your book particularly helpful at a low point in my life... You have given me new hope..." "Your book has made me a happier person already!" "...an awesome book..."
From  USA Today  bestselling author Meghan March comes a deliciously dirty trilogy. All three books are available now!  I've got a big ego and an even bigger bank account. That's pretty much where my bio ends. Honestly, I don't need to say anything else. I've just sold 99% of women on going home with me. Do I sound like a jerk to you? That's because I am. And guess what? It works for me just fine. Or at least it did. Until I met her. Books talk about sparks flying. Screw that. With her, it was like emergency flares mixed with jet fuel. Or maybe straight up napalm. Only one problem. She wouldn’t tell me her name or her number when she disappeared from the hotel room after the hottest night of my life. Now I've had a taste of the perfect woman, and I need it again. So what’s a jerk to do? Take this problem to the street. A missed connection gone viral. And when I find her? I’m keeping her.
Think and Grow Rich is one of the most popular success book of all-time, having sold more than 60 million copies since it was first published more than 70 years ago.  It has created countless millionaires and success stories in those who have read it, and is the standard against which all other success and self-development books are measured.   Written by Napoleon Hill, Think and Grow Rich is the result of more than 500 interviews of America’s wealthiest and most successful business owners in the early part of the 20th century.  It took Hill 25 years to compile, research and ultimately create Think and Grow Rich, and it was Andrew Carnegie who gave Hill the assignment of creating this masterpiece.   Think and Grow Rich reveals the “13 steps to riches” that Hill identified in the extensive interviews he completed, and lays a plan of action out that anyone can follow to create success and prosperity in their life.   You’ll enjoy Hill’s original work in this updated and revised version, which includes an additional free bonus of the special report, “Get More Business, Get More Life!”  In this ground-breaking work, you’ll learn why most entrepreneurs are exhausted and on the path to failure – and what to do about it.

The islands of Caldera are a shining jewel in a rather bleak world. A terrible calamity in the past had blanketed much of the world with a toxic "fug." Those who survived were forced to take to the mountains and the skies in wondrous airships. Life has since been a struggle, with only the most ruthless and crafty able to survive. To spare themselves the same fate, the Calderans erected a battery of guns to fend off the airships of the mainland. They isolated themselves from the madness of the world, choosing instead to focus on the pursuits of art and creativity. Few believe the technologically advanced but socially barbarous outsiders have anything to offer. Amanita Graus, though, is hoping that they do. Nita's mother has lost her livelihood and perhaps soon her life to a terrible disease. Already the black sheep of the family for embracing engineering rather than art, Nita resolves to leave the safety of her home and do whatever it takes to find a cure. For a price, the bizarre crew of an airship called The Wind Breaker are willing to grant her a meeting with their mysterious benefactors, and thus a chance to procure the one thing with a chance to save her mother. Free-Wrench follows Nita’s adventures in a steampunk world of airships and lunatics. Helping her in her journey are an eccentric crew of smugglers; the gruff Cap’n Mack, the simple but enthusiastic Lil and Coop, the arrogant marksman Gunner, the surly surgeon Butch, and the irritable mascot Wink. To survive and find what she seeks she’ll need to earn their trust, follow their rules, and meet face to face with the people who pull the strings of their society.
